Injectable treatments are an excellent alternative to surgery that have become incredibly popular with men and women of all ages. Their ability to get rid of lines and wrinkles as well as adding volume to the face, makes injectable treatments an extremely versatile, safe and effective way to combat the signs of aging.
Below are of the biggest benefits of injectable treatments.
- No downtime
This is a big one, especially for those with busy schedules. Surgical procedures, such as facelifts and necklifts require a good amount of downtime while you recover from the procedure. Injectable treatments come with no such downtime and in most cases you’re able to return to work the very next day. Any small side effects of injectable treatments, such as swelling and tenderness, are usually mild and subside quickly.
- A safer option to surgery
Surgical complications are something that a lot of people worry about. Although major complications are very rare, any surgical procedures comes with a certain degree of risk. Injectable treatments do not come with such risk and therefore are very appealing to those who want the benefits of a more youthful appearance without the risk that surgery brings.
- Target specific problems
There are many injectable treatments available in the form of dermal fillers and muscle relaxants. Treatments can be used to target very specific things, such as chin fat, lines around the eyes and mouth, loss of volume in the face or thin lips. In a liquid facelift, a combination of injectable treatments are administered to mimic the results of a traditional facelift.
- Add fullness to the cheeks
If you’ve recently lost a lot of weight, then there’s a chance that your face may have a gaunt appearance. This is a very common side effect of weight loss and can be corrected through the use of dermal fillers. Dermal fillers work by adding extra volume to areas of the face that can appear sunken, such as the cheeks and eyes.
- Get rid of chin fat
You might be under the assumption that the only way to get rid of submental fat (chin fat) is via liposuction or surgery. However there is an injectable treatment available that specifically targets submental fat. Kybella is an injectable treatment that when administered to the area beneath the chin, will dissolve any dietary fat contained in that area, resulting in a more youthful look.
